[sirens blaring] jenna: you may hear those sirens, we don't hear them often over jerusalem. this is after hamas fired off a rocket aimed at the holy city. folks on your screen running for cover. word today that that rocket hit the west bank and thankfully didn't cause any injuries. the rocket, just one of the more than 1200 from hamas fired at the jewish state since a week ago. israel is targeting key hamas sites as well firing artillery shells into gaza today and going after rocket and mortar teams all along the border. all of this happening as president obama dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton to the mideast, in jerusalem, ramallah and gaza. we will start with leland vittert on the israel-gaza border. >> reporter: there are multiple reports from senior israeli officials that there will be a cease-fire deal some time in the next 12 hours. you would think that would
in particular to this president's view of us as a world power, specifically as a pacific power. but this trip happens to be going on while something worrying and compelling is happening in a totally unrelated part of the world very far away. so there's our president in thailand standing there with the prime minister of thailand. but our president in the setting is fielding questions about something that's going on 4,000 miles away. around the other side of the globe in the middle east. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. my message to all of them was that israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory. if that can be accomplished without a ramping up of military activity in gaza, that's preferable. not just for the people of gaza, it's also preferable for israelis because if israeli troops are in gaza, they are much more at
's understanding that al qaeda still posed a threat, a different threat from the one that we were used to with bin laden but a threat nonetheless, i think the answer increasingly yes s yes. they didn't want the public to see that effort as anything other than a great success. that was part of obama's appeal. so i'd say on the particular details, i don't see much. on the broad theme, did they want the public to feel al qaeda was down for the count? yes, i think they did. >> rose: we conclude with julian sands, a british actor, talking about harold pinter, the english playwright and nobel laureate. >> in comparison with harold, other people looked blurred because he was such a life force. he was so present. he was so forceful. and he lived by pure intention. >> rose: aluf, dvid ignatius and julian sands when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: we begin with attacks by israel and hamas. in israel, three civilians have been killed and dozens wounded, hamas has fired more than one thousand rockets into israel, many o

coverage tonight. jonathan hunt at the united nations. first to david lee miller who is live for us this evening in southern israel. today, we heard from hamas leaders. what are they saying david lee? >> shep, let me give you breaking news, just a few moments ago we got word that three israeli cities in southern israel came under rocket attack. we could see the interceptor missiles overhead. this happening just a few moments ago. it was the first rocket attack we have seen in southern israel in the last several hours. now, as for the question about the hamas leadership, as hamas -- as i sudden say as gaza came under fire today by the israelis. the leader, exiled leader of hamas, michelle was speaking in cairo, that's where the cease-fire discussions are taking place. and he said that hamas is not calling for any ground war or escalation, but despite the fact that hamas over the last year has fired more than 700 rockets into israel, he said israel is the aggressor in this conflict. listen to what he said. >> we will not accept any -- they are the ones who attack. a cease-fire will cu

cnn by phone today how his organization is looking to see what the u.s. does. >> i think the egyptians are waiting for some support from the united states in order to make an -- we expect to have an outcome of this today. >> you have so many moving parts in all of this. there is a discrepancy, hamas saying this was a cease-fire, but israel is call iing it a ca down period. and here is israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, moments before word came. >> no country would tolerate rocket attacks against its cities and against its civilians. israel cannot tolerate such attacks. if a long-term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means, then israel would be a willing partner to such a solution. but if stronger military action proves necessary to stop the constant gara constant barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people. >> the most surprising thing for the palestinians is always talking about the israeli needs, about israeli security, about israel -- without talking about the palestinian needs, about the palestinian security, ab

and tax increases, hitting every single american taxpayer right in the wallet. it's not just us but get hit hard, amid all the uncertainty, companies are scaling back their investment plans. according to "the wall street journal", u.s. companies are cutting their spending plans in the fiscal and economic uncertainty, and doing so at the fastest pace in the a recession. it goes on to say that companies are not planning to spend this year or next year. i am joined by jeffrey miron. welcome back to the show, jeffrey. good to see you. i want to start with some breaking news that we had. moody's just announced that they are cutting france's government rating to aa from triple-a. the s&p da back did it back in january. of course, we mentioned last week that the eurozone is in recession. economies that are expanding and not contracting. is this a winning post for people in this country who can't seem to get our spending under control? >> i think it should be a warning. the entire situation should be a wake-up call. but even in europe, they are not recognized in the wake-up call. they are not d
has departed heading for the middle east. we begin with christiane. welcome. give us a sense of this new announcement from israel. how long do you think israel is waiting to silt on this halt before it would move forward with sending ground troops in? >> well, what was reported was that a senior government official in the loop close to the talks has confirmed to me this morning that after the latest intense round of conversations and meetings between prime minister netanyahu and his inner security cabinet, which went on into the early morning hours here jerusalem time, there has been a decision taken to hold on the ground offensive. to give time, he says, limited time to make the diplomatic solution work. that is their preferred option. however, he also adds that israeli military is prepared and continues to make its preparations in case, if and when, a decision is taken to escalate to a ground war. in that case the military would be prepared to react immediately. but clearly what we're hearing and what we've been reporting over the last 24 to 36 hours is that despite the fac
important instrument for us, and we'll be using that at some point, at the appropriate time, to begin to tighten monetary policy. now, you're talking about the other direction, why not just cut it to zero, pay no interest on excess reserves, and thereby, get more accommodation? well, it's something we've considered repeatedly, and we continue to consider, and i don't rule it out as an action in the futtre, what we do is the following. if we were to cut the interest rate from 25 basis points to 0 #, our estimate is it affects short term interest rates, like overnight rates, on the order of eight or nine basis points, extremely small amount, in turn, having a smaller effect on loans like housing loans or auto loans ect.. the stimulated agent -- act of that action is small, but on the other hand, the concerns we've had or some have had is that if there is no return on institutions, money market funds, repo markets and so on could be liquid because there's little incentive to act in the markets when interests pay zero, why not just hold cash or fallow reserves? so the concern is that, per
to fill in some more details on shifting u.s. economic and security forces toward southeast asia and the pacific. but the visit is overshadowed by other international issues in the spotlight. amongst the asia pacific community, that would be the battle over the south china sea which involves china cambodia and the philippines. while that's one of asia's biggest security issues right now, it's paling in comparison to what's going on in the middle east. fighting between israel and hamas continued again yesterday. the palestinian death toll is now up near 100 and many of those people are civilians. president obama and bill clinton both took to the phones yesterday, speaking with benjamin netanyahu of israel and president mohammed morsi of egypt. the main word they're using is de-escalate telling the two nations to scale back the violence but so far neither side is willing to cease-fire unless the other will bend to their demands. egypt does have a peace tree with israel which is why that country could be the key in pu
hours. really trying to put a u.s. stamp, footprint, if you will, on the negotiations. how much leverage does the u.s. have in actually making sure that the cease-fire is something that's going to hold? >> well the u.s. doesn't have much leverage over hamas because the u.s. doesn't deal with hamas. the u.s. government, previous governments, regards hamas as a terrorist organization. when secretary of state hillary clinton visits here in jerusalem later, then goes to ramallah to meet with mahmoud abbas tomorrow and then goes to cairo she's not going to meet with anyone from hamas. the u.s. does have leverage on egypt, given the economic and military assistance the u.s. provides to egypt and given the dire economic straits that the egyptians are in right now. so the u.s. has leverage on the egyptians and obviously the u.s. has very good relations with israel. so the u.s. is a key player in all of this. but as far as leverage on hamas, u.s. leverage is limited. >> secretary of state hillary clinton's arriving soon in jerusalem about three hours or so from now. she'll go to ramallah, then on
until we sample the bacon. thank you for joining us on "happening now." jon: "america live" happens right now. megyn: you people need help. fox news alert. welcome, everyone. reports circulating of a cease-fire in the middle east. a horrifying story unfolding on the gaza strip. that's where we begin with today's edition of american life. after nearly a week's worth of fighting, both people now say progress has been made. our own diplomats, including hillary clinton have raised through broker an end to the fighting. rockets rating down on israel, sending them running for their lives and israel's iran dome rocket defense system, inside the gaza city, a horrifying display. this is what happened after six men, accused of spying for israel, were pulled from a van and shot. a photographer was getting this picture of a body being dragged behind the streets by members of hamas. wheatland bedard has an update for us now. reporter: right now, the very latest as we think that there will probably be a cease-fire. those are the latest reports. indications out of cairo and out of israel that we a
of -- used interchangeably. if the dividing line is famous not have a nuclear weapon and then it will become nearly impossible to manage because that means they can continue to enrich plutonium at three levels that define nuclear capability, delivery systems, instrument capability, and warheads. the delivery systems are not a subject of negotiation. the question is whether the enrichment capability gets eliminated. drawing a line at the weapons, the warhead development is not meaningful because from richmond to weapon, and our intelligence capability on that subject is so limited. negotiations are going on. the fact of bilateral negotiation between iran and the united states is a matter of grave concern to the sunni arab -- iranian nuclear capability, totally eliminated, where negotiations seem to be going, to establish some line beyond and richmond will not take place and the conventional wisdom and that is if you permission and richmond beyond a 5% level you are close to a military enrichment capability. so to negotiate with iran, and secondly, how do you handle the enrichment problem? on

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> eliot: good evening, i'm eliot spitzer, and this is "viewpoint." the six day air war between israel and hamas terrorist and gaza continued unabated while diplomat i canic talks continue in egypt, israel's leaders are preparing to take what they call operation pillar and defense. theyprominent netanyahuprime minister netanyahu and his cabinet deciding what to do. they said if israel was going to invade gaza, they would have done so already. after israel killed hamas' military commander in airstrike three israeli civilians have been killed and 70 wounded missile strikes that reached as far as tel aviv, 50 miles from gaza's northern border. but israel's iron dome defense system has knocked down hundreds of palestinian missiles, limiting casualties and damage. they have launched 1300 airstrikes against targets in gaza. 106 palestinians have been killed in the fighting. hospital officials say half of those killed were civilians. howeve
's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what is your sense on the ground about the likely prospects of a cease-fire and how long will the israelis give it before committing to a possible ground offensive? >> reporter: the likelihood of a cease-fire seems to be increasingly elusive the longer this does drag on, and all through the night, we have been hearing the sound of air strikes, some of them have actually shook the building that we're standing in. we have also been seeing rockets continuously being fired from gaza city, from the center of the city towards israel. not a lot of optimism on the ground here amongst residents of the city who have been through this on so many occasions in the past, that there will be any sort of cease-fire that is going to take effect in the near future, not to mention on
obama becomes the first u.s. president [indiscernible] pressing for reforms. >> you will not believe the scientific advance that has this dog back on his feet. welcome to our viewers on public television in america and around the globe. the u.n. secretary-general is among those calling for an immediate end to the violence in gaza. his words come as more than 100 have been killed in the past week of fighting. the majority of them palestinians. palestinian militants have continued firing weapons into israel. in cairo, discussions are ongoing about cease-fire. jeremy our coverage from gaza. >> good morning, gaza. this was the wake-up call sent in by israel. growing up in gaza is not easy. not far away, is the rubble left by the israeli strike on sunday that killed 10 members of this family including four children and two neighbors. they are looking for the remains of a teenage girl missing and presumed dead. this man is a relative of the dead. >> sad, may be strong. >> street are getting tougher, more solid. when they tell the parents of a boy, he will grow up for revenge. >> during the
around the corner. >> and ben, i know right before you literally came on the air with us, there were a couple of rockets that went off behind you. how frequently do they strike? >> they're sporadic and in no sense is it through the the day. every few hours. you'll hear sort of a deep roar and push as it goes out. i say that's about a third of a mile from here. about four or five rockets went out. but we saw them way up in the sky hit by those missiles of israel's iron dome system, so it doesn't appear that they actually reached their targets. on the other side of the border. >> thank you very much. reporting from gaza and now, let's go to israel. fred is in ashkelan, and does the escalation you've seen in this conflict seem different than what you've seen in prior conflicts between hamas and israel? >> reporter: well, certainly, if you look at the civilian population here, they seem to be a lot more worried than in the past. one of the things that's going on is that there are a lot of rockets falling down on the area here around gaza. certainly a lot more than you would have at norma
with israeli and arab leaders after cutting short her visit to asia. the u.s. reports it is a official ally of israel and supports israel's right to defend itself. but there are concerns about an israeli ground assault that could mark a dangerous escalation in this conflict. as i mentioned, secretary of state clinton is set to meet with netanyahu in jerusalem and then with palestinian officials in ramallah in the west bank before heading to cairo to meet with egyptian leaders. that would complete the triangle. jennifer griffin is at the state department. this was not part of the president's -- well, the president's so-called pivot to asia, jennifer. >> the middle east conflict as you and i both know has a way of pulling every administration back in. you remember that bill clinton as one of his last agenda items as president tried to come up with peace between the israelis and the palestinians. he failed. now secretary of state hillary clinton has left what was supposed to be her last trip with the president to asia. she made her way. she has just landed in jerusalem. she will meet tonight w
, thanks so much. >>> joining us from tel aviv is nbc news correspondent martin fletcher. from your perspective, what are israeli authorities saying about the potential of a cease-fire coming this hour? >> reporter: well, you know, the israelis have been saying all along, pouring cold water on to the reports which have come from arab sources that an agreement and a truce was going to be signed this evening. there was one radio report that said senior israeli officials said it would happen, but otherwise, there's been silence. the only thing that's come out from the israeli sources is that the deal is not wrapped up and that there is still a long way to go. very important issue. as ayman mentioned. i think the key is the sound bite from prime minister netanyahu. he's calling for a long-term solution through diplomatic means if possible. what he means if it isn't possible there's still the ground force invasion on the ground, it's still an option until that's a deal. there isn't yet a deal. it very close, it appears, but it appears it's not as close as the sources who are saying that
be settled with iran or we go to the next option? what you think of the casual use of the year as a deadline? ok, thank you. >> i think all of these different shades of gray from total denuclearization to starting iran only at the markhor they would be a fully -- only at the marker where they would be hopefully nuclear- capable country he is confusing. we are all tempted to over- interpret. we started in the iranian process saying to literally stop any nuclear capabilities. that is no longer what we are talking about. that is no longer achievable as a longshot. i think the goal inside the administration, what is the true red line before the united states as opposed to israel or neighbors of iran? i think it is possible that we could accept something that the iranians would say we have already picked the japan option. we want to demonstrate we have the technical capabilities, but without the possibility of deploying full weapons systems and we would give assurance to the international community. whether the president used slightly more casual language than he intended that day, i do not know.
president of egypt being the prime mover here, pressured by the u.s., but bringing together all sides? i'm not sure that ayman can hear us. we have a satellite delay. can we talk about the diplomacy from the standpoint of hamas and the muslim brotherhood? >> yeah. andrea, these talks have been now under the auspices of the egyptian government but more specifically under the au spis sis of intelligence officials. they can meet with israel and the palestinian factions. it's unlikely that president m mahmoud morsi was going to sit down with any envoys. he will be heading back to cairo tomorrow to meet with hillary clinton. egyptian officials involved or familiar with them have been telling nbc news this is unlikely to be a long-term truce. this is more likely to be a cessation of hostilities in the short term to pave the way for longer discussions about the fundamental issues as to why this persistent problem keeps coming up, the siege on gaza, rockets into southern israel and outstanding issues. what we can say so far is that all indications suggest that there will be a truce at some poi
, president obama said sunday the u.s. while working to de-escalate the situation and end the fighting would stand behind its ally. >> we're fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes, workplaces and potentially killing civilians. and we'll continue to support israeli's right to support itself. >> eliot: a poll said that 57% support israel's israel. egypt is serving as an intermediary in the ongoing talks vicinity's president told reporters if the situation was further escalateed this co-mean dire consequences, and we could not accept that, and the free world could not accept that. william hague seemed to agree. a ground invasion is much more difficult for the international community to support. for more for the efforts to broker peace i'm joined by james traub and by joe cirincione president of the global security foundation and author of "bomb scare: the history and future of nuclear weapons." why now? why is this simmer conflict simmering conflict happening. >> there is an election coming up in israel. the cynical interpretation would be ne
, but that's what's in this book. it's all there. >> you take us into the future. >> yes. >> this is a future where the nra doesn't exist, a liberal president, and the war beginnings to unfold. >> it begins with a deadly attack that kills americans. it begins with a goflt that lies to its people about what actually took place. israel under the gun and being attacked. we're being told repeatedly that radical islam is no longer a threat, and yet it's all in that book. it's all happening today. >> you in your life, you were directed -- you were given orders by the cia director casey at the time. you were given seven suicide pills, correct? >> yeah. >> all right. >> to go to tehran. >> to negotiate for the hodges. >> it had to do with tehran. it didn't have to do with day to day life in washington. >> i understand. as you see we're now two decades beyond. explain. is it worse now than it's ever been and how bad could it possibly get? >> i think it is worse. i think it's worst in large part because if we don't recognize who your enemy is, and this was written 2000 years ago, you will lose. we have
press. three israeli civilians have died. let me bring in nbc's martin fletcher in tel aviv for us and "washington post" columnist e.j. deion. mar martin, let me start with you. it sounds like, at least in the last couple of hours, they're getting closer to a deal. where do things stand? >> reporter: that's right. as you said, it is very encouraging signs. the fact that not only hillary clinton is coming and that the egyptian president said what he said and the israeli radio quoted their sources but also hearing seniors, including the arab league, suggests that leadership of various countries and organizations are coming to the region for an announcement which the vetting is that this evening hillary clinton will be meeting israeli prime minister and the betting is at that time the ceasefire announce nounsment could be made. so it's encouraging but at the same time i should point out that there are other reports that the army is gearing up even more than before on the border with gaza. that could be last-minute posturing by the israelis both israel and hamas will be until the very
countries see opportunity in the united states of america. thanks for joining us. >>> good evening. breaking news tonight. you're looking live at a tense and fearful gaza city but what you can't see, thousands of israeli troops with tanks and armored vehicles poised on gaza's borders ready to invade if israel believes there's no chance for a cease-fire in its conflict with hamas. the world is watching and waiting. this was the scene earlier today. tonight, i talked to both sides of the conflict, listen to what israel's president, shimon peres, tells me about the looming threat of all-out war. you do believe, mr. president, that a ground war may be inevitable? >> well, i hope that we achieve cease-fire. the negotiations are still being continued. it's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what
and they got crushed in both elections. new they tell us we have to keep moderating. if we do that, will we win? and tea party senator jim demint of south carolina had this to say about moderate senatorial candidates. quote, what i learned is the people who are still out there running on bold ideas, those conservatives won. in the case of ray burg, berg, and tommy thompson, having a moderate candidate does not win races for republicans. i want to start with you, matt, because you're on the right, and your sense of this election. was romney too moderate and too big tent and not fervent enough and not that much of a conviction politician or was he unable to reach all kinds of people that just didn't go for the conservative message? >> you know, if you look at this race, it wasn't so much conservative versus moderate. it was lacking a set of issues. you really struggled to see what mitt romney was for, and there is a sense amongst the establishment republican political class to not run on issues, to almost run a beauty contest, and mitt romney lost that fight against barack obama. i think it's pre
. i'm chris matthews in philadelphia. let me start tonight with this -- it used to be the democrats who were nasty to their losers. jimmy carter, walter mondale, mike dukakis, al gore, they all had to skip town to avoid the abuse they faced after losing. the fact is democrats don't forgive candidate who is lose. they try to erase them from history. they shoot their wounded. but watch what the republicans are doing this very minute. they're taking romney apart like vultures on a wounded antelope. want to make your bones as a prospect for 2016? just take a piece out of the guy who went down in 2012. get a piece of romney and wave it in the air. newt gingrich, bobby jindal, they're all doing it. our guests are both msnbc political analysts. howard, i have to tell you, this is something like i've never seen before. let's start with these clips of the sunday talk show circuit. republicans ran with mitt romney remarks that the president had won because of gifg gifts to minorities and young voters. take a look. >> i just think it's nuts. i mean, first of all, it's insulting. this would be
using communications facilities to get in touch with people on the ground. in total, more than 100 palestinians have been killed. half of them civilians. among them 1 11 civilians. all of them from the same family. most women and children killed from a single airstrike over the weekend. israel says the strike was the result of targeting the home of a rocket mastermind who was working for the militants. meanwhile, the militants in gaza continue to fire rockets in to israel. today, more than 100 rockets were launched. almost half of them were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system here. nevertheless, two schools were hit. the results could have been catastrophic. but the classes were not in session because of the ongoing conflict. notably there were no rockets launched headed in the direction of tel aviv. lastly, over my shoulder in the distance, you can take a look. see the iron dome system here in southern israel. five batteries throughout the country. when there are rockets fired, this missile defense system is operated. i hold in my hand, this is something you very r
in the cause they say progressives want to help the little guy and they have the values as all of us? the next time they sell you garbage two stories that are perfect examples of what the left does once they get power. by the way, not looking out for you. first up, george soros, the money behind the far left group moveon.org, he wants chaos at wal-mart on black friday. height of the shopping season. they want picket leans, flash mobs and mass destructions at wal-mart stores. is that what you want when you bring your kids shopping the day after thanksgiving? greg, i am going first off, can you imagine that you walk in a wal-mart, day after thanksgiving, and they have picket signs in the parking lot. you're crazy. >> greg: george soros wouldn't know a wal-mart if he bought one. this is as far away from the billionaire's life. is he the self-appointed labor secretary? why doesn't obama appoint him as the destroy america czar? he hates this place. by the way, chopping is, shopping is the exercise in the gym that is capitalism. capitalism is what drives america. activists hate wal-mart because it's
is also a former u.s. navy helicopter pilot, he trained extensively with the israeli navy while operating in the mediterranean. welcome back to the show. let's get right to it. your expert opinion, do you think a war is imminent here? >> thank you for having me. i don't think war is imminent. what we have is what i would describe as a medium or high intensity tactical conflict. until the israelis cross the border with ground forces into gaza, we have not sucked up into full war. the other thing to keep in mind, this low intensity conflict between israel and hamas has been going on for the better part of six years. there's only been in the past week or two it has exploded into this level of violence. melissa: why do you think it is exploding now? exploded now? it's a changing neighborhood? neighbors have become even more hostile toward israel, egypt with the muslim brotherhood and their ties or potential ties to hamas. seems like turkey, their words have been so inflammatory, it seems all of a sudden they find themselves more alone than ever. do you agree with that? speak unfortunately the
